Happy Friday! And if you are not a card holder and want to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, your day is here. It’s public access from now until August 5. I’m guessing your blog feed is full of Nsale posts again today, but I’m hoping I can share something useful for you. Some of my orders arrived this week, and some of them have already been shipped right back out. I don’t seem to have too many wins from this round, but my bank account appreciates it.
So what’s still available? It’s hard to say because some things sold out first day of early access and have not been restocked. And some things may sale out today by the time you read this. So, if you think you may want it, go ahead and order. Make multiple small orders if you have too. I had this cami sell out in black while it was in my cart before I checked out. Go ahead and get your first picks checked out and then go back and look some more.
There appears to still be a good selection of Caslon long sleeve crewneck tees available in solids. They are so soft! I got one last year. If I needed them, I’d definitely buy more of these. I just don’t need to replace my long sleeve tees this go around (well, I need a white one but the white one looks thin.) The button neck tee is super cute too! This super popular top sold out on day one but has been restocked in a few sizes.
Most of my denim picks are still available. I only saw one pair completely sold out when I looked. My picks are for curvy girls like me, and they have a higher (larger) back rise. My favorite brand and bootie is still available. If I didn’t already have a similar pair, I’d scoop them up! So comfortable!
So what did I get?
I tried out the Natori Feathers bra. It’s a RETURN. It has good reviews around the net, but let’s just say it’s not for my shape. I could see where it would be comfortable, but it didn’t do much to flatter my shape.
Kendra Scott Kirsten drop earrings in irridescent glass/silver- I didn’t like them as much as I thought I would. Maybe in a different color. RETURN.
Gorjana Kellen Linked Drop– LOVE! KEEP! So elegant and sleek but fun and interesting too.
Gorjana power gemstone bracelet in blue agate I love these bracelets. I’m wondering if I made the right color choice for my wardrobe, but really I want one in every color. I think I’m keeping it, but not sure. Color is the only reason I’m faltering.
Levi High Waist Crop jean– RETURN. I ordered my size (28) and the waist is really snug. I’m very short waisted so high waist pants are tricky for me. These don’t seem to have much stretch and I didn’t love them enough to try on the 29 I ordered. They also just looked like short jeans on me and nothing special.
Caslon Crop Flare Jeans– KEEP. The flare is so cute. I ordered a 28 and 29. The 28 is snug to begin with and snug in my thighs, but within about 30 minutes they were beginning to stretch into a nice fit. Soft jeans with great stretch and the flare is so cute. High waisted, but with the stretch I can make these work.
Vince Camuto Kentvi Sandal in black- I want to love these, but the heel is higher than I want it to be. I have looked for black peep toe booties for the past two years and just can’t find any that meet my specs. RETURN.
I also ordered the Kristen Cavallari bootie in black. Beautiful shoe but just not quite what I want. It didn’t fit well on my heel either and I’m afraid it will rub. RETURN.
Chantelle Intimates Seamless Hipster I was so skeptical of a one size fits all panty. Most panties of this type don’t deliver what they promise either. They dig in on the edges and create more bulges and bumps for me. Well, these presently surprised me. I ordered one pair to try and have since ordered more. I think I’ll like the bikini cut better so I reordered it in that cut. KEEP.
Wacoal How perfect no wire contour bra– KEEP! This one is better suited for me. I haven’t worn it yet but I think it’s going to be comfortable!
JCrew Cameron High Rise Crop pant– Way too high waisted for me (short waisted short girl problems here), but if you have a normal torso and you are curvy, you will probably love them. RETURN.
Beauty Blender set– I love this blender. No, knock offs are not as good. I’m excited that this set comes with a travel case. (I’ve been known to throw my blenders and sponges in the bag with everything else, but yuck! KEEP.
Ready, set, go! Enjoy public access. I hope that you have some better insight on how to shop now that some of the hype of early access is over and I can offer some advice on the few things I tried. I have a few blouses coming in and I’ll update you on those when they get here.
You can find all of my picks by category on this page.
Have a great day.
